It's tested and runs in production with the above named Debian Etch packages.

Motivation

A database-driven mail system is easy to handle through webbased user/admin interfaces. For pure mail users on your server you only have to enter some data records without having to define system users. The mail system will recognize them immediately by reading the database.

Moreover you'll have all configuration in one place - e.g.:

User exists?Qpsmtpd
User enabled?Qpsmtpd
User's mailboxExim, Dovecot
etc.
